Lake Michigan Academy's Full Profile



Lake Michigan Academy says

Lake Michigan Academy is the only school in West Michigan devoted solely to educating children with learning disabilities (LD). Serving grades 1-12, Lake Michigan Academy provides the opportunity for a fresh start, focusing on individual strengths while honoring the fact that children learn at different paces.


We have an individualized curriculum where we keep a student to teacher ratio 8:1 in the elementary classrooms and may go up to 10 students in middle and high school. In the afternoon, groups can become even smaller for remedial work in reading, writing, and math.

Mission Statement

Our ability to customize a curriculum to each student gives Lake Michigan Academy a unique advantage over other education systems. We begin by identifying the specific strengths and weaknesses that require special attention. While our students carry various "labels" (dyslexic, ADHD, etc.), our mission is to look beyond those labels and see these children for who they really are - bright, capable, creative kids.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
